Mount Royal Sketches

By in color, montreal, paintings, parks, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Yesterday, I went to a friend’s place just over Mount Royal, Not far from the Côte-des-Neiges Cemetery gates. And it was such a nice day I sketched this elaborate monument just inside the gates.

Got to the other side of the “mountain.” That’s the part I call the “front” because it faces what used to be my neighbourhood. Had a good view of the world-famous “Mordecai Richler Gazebo” or bandstand, which had recently been marked by graffiti (non-political, I think). Hence the danger tape and the traffic cones, only barely indicted in the sketch below.

Still, it was very pleasant to sketch things from life. I want to do it some more, and work on my watercolour chops.
